A Message from Patrick Criss, Director, Information Security Operations
One of the most common cyberattacks is phishing. A staggering 91% of cybercrime starts with email, according to a report by security firm FireEye. These emails are designed to deceive and trick recipients into taking action, such as clicking a malicious link or opening an attachment with a virus. These types of attacks can be from email as well as text messages. To protect yourself, before you click any link, make sure it’s valid.
